Blogmas Day Three: Amanda’s December TBR Jar Picks

Hello, lovelies! I have lots of fun things planned for Antonia and me to share with you this Blogmas. But first up will be my final TBR jar picks of 2021. I’m still in the midst of the Clear Your Shit Readathon (find my tbr for that here.) And a few weeks ago I announced round four of End of Year-A-Thon, so expect a separate TBR post for that later this month. So, I’m only going to choose five books and a few of my NetGalley arc’s to add to my TBR this month. Some of those might cross over with the two readathons, but we will see!

Graphic Novel

Lore Olympus: Volume One by Rachel Smythe

Most Recent Purchase

Game On: Tempting Twenty-Eight by Janet Evanovich


The God of Lost Words by A.J. Hackwith


The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang

Young Adult

Into the Wild Light by Jeff Zentner

These are the five books I’ve picked from my TBR jar prompts. I’m really trying to get all of my 2021 NetGalley arc’s finished before the year is over.

No Beauties or Monsters by Tara Goedjen

The Excalibur Curse by Kiersten White

If This Gets Out by Sophie Gonzales & Cale Dietrich

These are the handful of books I’m hoping to finish in December. Check out my Clear Your Shit Readathon TBR to see what else I’ll likely read this month and keep an eye out for my readathon TBR. What are you hoping to read this month?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
